Intern Testimonials

 

“During my time at CFBL Consulting, I have been given ample opportunity to develop my skills as a Marketer. For me, the freedom and responsibility of being put in charge of developing and implementing a marketing strategy allowed me to experiment and understand how to use tools and techniques I previously was only able to apply theoretically. It has been a great experience and no doubt has helped me secure my new role.” 

                                               

Ross Findlay

 

“I started as a digital marketing intern but I quickly evolved into a consulting intern, working mostly on commercial, technology and risk & control strategy issues. I have enjoyed the teamwork and the experience of working in a robust environment. I believe that I have learned a lot of new skills and worked effectively as a team player. What I have valued most, is working closely with our Director. This has enabled me to engage in high-quality work and provided a unique combination of experiences.”

 

Antonios Tsalikis

 

“Despite 2020 being a challenging year, I was lucky to receive a voluntary internship at CFBL Consulting. My responsibility was to finish a variety of projects to client requirement, analysing financial performance and recommending solutions for improvement. I was amazed at the responsibility and involvement that was given to me as an intern. I am grateful for this amazing opportunity of working with a brilliant team. The team were amazing, welcoming and willing to support me. We understood and helped each other, which always made me feel like family.”
